Fun in the Son

Albert Einstein said, “When I examine myself and my methods of thought, I come to the conclusion that the gift of fantasy has meant more to me than my talent for absorbing positive knowledge.” This is the time of the year when we can infuse our daily activities with adventure, exploration, and imagination in His beautiful world.
